Allright, I should have started another thread...

I took this picture of Dallas and lightened it up to the point the shirt seems close to the "Ivory" color. The green shirt seems a bit more blue than the pistachio color (to my eyes).

Am I beating a dead horse here? Being over-critical (probably both)?

At the risk of complicating things/re-inventing the wheel, here is my Gildan Ultra Cotton T in pistachio, with embellishments, photographed under natural light. The lettering on the back is olive drab/grey.

This reads into the blue for me. I seem to remember the sets had lots of fluorescent tubes but they shot with tungsten film. Might help explain why Ash's uniform reads blue when it is in fact seafoam green.

Apologies if this is too distracting or hijacking.

Hello there!

Would like an ivory in a large size, please! Thanks!

I’m interested in an Ivory in Medium please.

Again, marvelous work sir, well done!

That is true and a good point about the seafoam green/blue.

The little horizontal strip of fabric is the correct color of the shirt I was trying to match. I managed to work it out, but yes.. this is a finicky color :)

Sort of a gray-green on that strip. I wouldn’t call that a seafoam green myself…

But the “embellished” Pistachio shirt looks good in the photograph. I’ll probably just stick with that.

This color is referred to as "Seafoam Green", the lighting while taking the photo and the fact that we all view the same photo on our computer screen, does not convey a 100% accurate representation of the true color of that strip.

I'm interested. Ivory, probably large but maybe medium depending on final sizing chart. Looks amazing, glad my father kept all his Thinking Cap hats in such great shape!
